Mix well and let it cook for some time.
Add grated carrot and breadcrumbs. Mix well. Next, in a separate bowl, combine cornflour and water. Make small kebabs out of the dal mixture, dip it into the cornflour mix and roll in oats. Heat oil in a pan, and shallow-fry these kebabs until golden-brown from both sides. Oats dal kebab is ready!
